What is Craftsy?
Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. It also has a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a projects section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. With over two million members and counting Craftsy has something for just about everyone in categories ranging from quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more.
Why should I take a class online?
Online education isn’t just for schools and universities anymore. Craftsy courses provide you the convenience of a world-class instructor in your home, whenever you want to learn. Online education, no matter what subject, is a great alternative to in-person classes for a number of reasons.
With many online learning opportunities being on-demand, you are able to learn at your own pace, anytime. Online learning is a fantastic alternative to in-store craft classes for people with busy schedules or who have difficulty leaving the house. It also allows you to watch a troubling section over-and-over again, so you can see exactly how a technique is carried out, or refer back to your class for relevant concepts before beginning any new projects.
Why I’m a fan of Craftsy?
For me Craftsy is my go to website for so many reason including all of the above. For me living in a remote mining town Craftsy’s a godsend as there’s no classes I can go to here unless I want to jump on plane. I actually find Craftsy classes even better than attending a face to face class as I can refer back to the videos anytime I like and best of all once you sign up for a Craftsy class you get lifetime access to it. It doesn’t really get any better than that! Actually that’s not quite true because it does get better than that. All the instructors at Craftsy are at the top of their field and they all love to share their knowledge and experience with us and answer any questions we might have. I actually love reading the questions other participants ask as well as they sometimes ask questions I hadn’t even thought about and the instructors and the other students always help with the answers to the questions being asked.
Oh the other things I love are all the FREE Craftsy Classes
If you haven’t yet tried a Craftsy class or visited their website recently I can highly recommend you do as there’s so much to choose from and there’s always new classes added each week for you to explore and enjoy.
Oh by the way if you click on one of the links above and decide to sign up for a class I could actually earn a small commission from the sale and could buy myself a coffee while I watch one of my Craftsy classes. Promoting Craftsy is not my main source of income I only endorse and recommend Craftsy classes because I love them and have learnt a LOT from the many classes I have taken and I’m sure you will too 🙂
